Christmas Decorating Idea #1
Go for a walk and gather evergreen boughs and branches to fill your home with a festive scent. Use them to decorate the mantle, staircase, and front door.
Decorating Idea #2
Consider a tree adorned only in white lights or completely bare - marvel at nature's perfection.
Decorating Idea #3
Group large pinecones in threesomes bound with ribbon. Hang them from doorknobs, stair banisters, or in windows.
Decorating Idea #4
Spread cheer in unexpected places, like the powder room. String white lights around the mirror and hang festive ornaments from the chandelier.
Decorating Idea #5
Keep a Polaroid handy and snap family and friends as they enter, or posed near the tree. Post pictures on a bulletin board that is covered with pretty gift-wrap.
Decorating Idea #6
Rhinestone brooches and clip earrings will enhance your Christmas decor. Use them to add sparkle to any table.
Decorating Idea #7
Nuts are traditional holiday favorites - use them decoratively. Hang walnut clusters from pretty bows and attach to boughs throughout the house.
Decorating Idea #8
Let school-age children decorate the tree all by themselves. Offer paper, scissors, glue, felt, popcorn, cranberries and ribbons. Provide help only when asked and make no adjustments to the handiwork. Then revel in their pride.
Decorating Idea #9
Fill beautiful bowls with oranges, pomegranates, or apples.
Christmas Decorating Idea #10
Create a tree of life - invite friends and family to contribute one ornament each to your tree. Don't worry about "matching" - instead celebrate the uniqueness.
